Get a first look at our new charming tea kettles and toasters

English breakfast is a classic morning meal that has been enjoyed for centuries. While a traditional English breakfast can include eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, mushrooms, and grilled tomatoes, two items that often steal the show are the humble crumpet and a cuppa tea.

How to serve crumpets the English way: Crumpets are a type of bread that has a unique texture that is both spongy and crispy. Once your crumpets are toasted, you can serve them plain or with butter. Some people like to add jam or honey for a sweet treat, while others prefer to top them with savoury ingredients like cheese or smoked salmon.

When it comes to serving your English breakfast, you can either serve your crumpets on the side or use them as a base for other ingredients. For example, you could top your crumpets with a fried egg and some bacon for a tasty breakfast sandwich.

How Laura Ashley toasters can help you toast to perfection: The 2 and 4-Slice Toasters are compact and multi-functional. Both also come with a defrost and reheat mode. The self-centering technology ensures toast is evenly browned on both sides, includes a warming rack for heating croissants, and can cook bagels, crumpets, and thick-sliced bread.

How to make the perfect cup of English tea: English tea is a simple and easy drink to make, but there are a few tips and tricks to ensure that you get the perfect cup of tea every time.

1. Choose the right tea: The type of tea you choose can make a big difference in the flavour of your tea. Black tea is the most common type of tea used for English tea. 

2. Boil fresh water: Use a stovetop or countertop kettle to bring your water to the perfect temperature for tea. The water you use to make your tea is just as important as the tea itself. Use fresh, cold water and bring it to a rolling boil. This will ensure that your tea brews properly. Using a tea kettle will help keep your water warm in case you want a second cup and prevent it from cooling down too quickly.

4. Brew the tea: If loose-leaf tea and using a tea strainer seems daunting, opt for a tea bag with your flavour of choice and add it to your teacup or mug. Pour the hot water over the tea bag and let it steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea. 

5. Serve and enjoy: After the tea has been brewed, carefully remove the strainer or tea bag. Add milk and sugar to taste, if desired.

Why the Laura Ashley Stove Top Kettle is ideal for tea time: The Stove Top Kettle is a designer kettle in a timeless classic shape that features a traditional whistling sound and can boil up to 10 cups with a 3-litre capacity while heating evenly in a short amount of time.
